Are you an ESOL teacher looking to improve your skills and qualification?


We are offering two free units of accredited ESOL Teacher Training at Level 3 and Level 5 based on the LRN Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (ELTAB and ELTAC) with the option of completing the Level 3 qualification.

The training will help to: 

  1. build your confidence as a teacher,
  2.  adapt materials for different learner levels,
  3. address issues for lower-level learners and those with literacy issues,
  4. integrate low-level technology in your lessons

Our Commitment

We will complete a bespoke learning plan to determine your journey on the programme over a maximum of 6 months.  Course delivery includes an evening and weekend option, an intensive option, a school hours option, and a lower weekly hours option. There will also be one-to-one coaching sessions and targetted learning activities in small groups.

We will support you if you choose to complete the final unit of the Level 3 qualification.


We are committed to supporting you so that you can reach your goals.

The course delivery includes an evening and weekend option, for those who work full-time.

If you have more free time and would like to complete the course as quickly as possible, there is an intensive option.

For those used to working school hours - we offer you an option to attend then.

And if you have limited time during the week - we have an option for you to attend lower weekly hours, for more weeks. 

Alongside the many classroom options, you will also receive one-to-one coaching sessions and targetted learning activities in small groups.

Your Commitment

Because these two units are free of charge, the only thing we require of you is your time and dedication.  

  • Completing Level 3 units will require approximately 45 hours of study. 
  • Completing Level 5 units will require approximately 60-70 hours of study.
  • Units must be completed over a maximum period of 6 months.

The possibilities

After completing these two free units, you will be well on your way to full accreditation. And we will support you in completing the final unit of the level 3 qualification.
